Summary: The Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3 is a marked improvement from its predecessor, the S10-2, and is one of the most compact yet comfortable Netbooks we've seen. However, it costs more than Netbooks with similar features.
Excerpt: Byg og Design Udformningen af IdeaPad S10 er ikke overraskende i lighed med andre netbooks vi har set i de seneste måneder, men Lenovo har formået at inkludere et par behagelige overraskelser. Det udvendige er dækket i hvidt "perle-lignende" plast med en lille blank finish. Interiøret tastatur og palmrest overflader er beklædt med mat hvid plast med rimelig holdbarhed, og kun en mindre bid af flex omkring palmrests når du trykker på en fast plads på disse overflader.
Excerpt: Who says you have to pick between a netbook and the coming onslaught of standalone tablet devices? Okay maybe some (eh hem Apple), but Lenovo's trying to have it both ways with the IdeaPad U1 and the S10-3t . In clamshell mode the S10-3t looks like any old 10-inch netbook, but swivel around its capacitive mulitouch display and it turns into that slate device you've been dreaming of.
Pros: Thin and light convertible design, Responsive capacitive touchscreen, New Intel Atom N470 processor
Excerpt: What do you do when you can’t decide between buying a netbook and buying one of these shiny new tablet devices? You may like having a physical keyboard for ease of typing, but you also like touchscreen interfaces for ease of use. Well, the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t is trying to offer the best of both worlds.
Summary: Up to the challenge? The IdeaPad S10-3t Convertible from Lenovo is a combination of netbook and tablet which could be described stylishly as a "netvertible”. The older Intel Atom N450 single core processor and a flood of tablet novelties didn’t make things easy for our tester.
Pros: Battery life, Design and processing, Extensibility, Capacitive Touch Screen, Mini-PCI Express slot, Quiet cooling system
Cons: Average speakers, Few product contents, Compact keyboard and touchpad, Interface scope
Summary: The Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t convertible Netbook tablet is priced to compete with the iPad, but underwhelming battery life and unpredictable touch response mar an otherwise sharp-looking portable.
Cons: Poor battery life, touch screen is laggy at times.
Summary: If the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t were simply a netbook, it would be a decent offering. It offers middle-of -the-road performance, a decent keyboard, and a compact, light weight case. I’d be happier with a larger touchpad and a more powerful battery, but I’d also be happier with world peace and a million bucks in my pocket. We can’t always have everything.
But the problem is that the IdeaPad S10-3t isn’t simply a netbook.
Excerpt: Lenovo's IdeaPad line is somewhat unpredictable. In our estimation, it's the company's "fun" line of products; in other words, it's the range of notebooks that they can tinker with, while the ThinkPad caters to business-class users. The IdeaPad S10 line of netbooks has been going for a few years now, obviously with a good deal of success. But as netbooks become more and more popular, the risk of creating another "also-ran" increases.
Pros: Great Touch Panel Response, Nice Design, Extremely Thin and Light
Cons: Lackluster Battery Life, Gets Rather Warm In Use, Sluggish Performance, Glossy Display Can't Be Used Outside, Trackpad
